neighborhoods in US

for a personal project I need a list of all <neighborhood, city, state, zip code> in US. I was hoping to generate this from the zillow neighborhood boundaries shape files ( http://www.zillow.com/howto/api/neighborhood-boundaries.htm ) but I am not sure how to parse out the required information from these cryptic files :) . Will really appreciate any help here. Thanks.

Shapefiles are a once-proprietary, de-facto industry standard for GIS software. You should be able to find free converters to KML by Googling, or if you just want lists you should be able to open up the .dbf portions of the downloads in Excel. Good luck.
